Friday PM update: Henry has been removed from the injury report and is a must start in fantasy as usual.

Friday update: Henry was practicing on Friday, per Jim Wyatt. He might get a questionable tag, but he appears likely to play.

Thursday update: Henry was not seen at practice on Thursday, per Terry McCormick. Henry did tell reporters, “My foot is fine. There’s nothing wrong. I’ll be out there on Sunday playing. The foot is fine. There’s nothing to panic about, so everybody have a great Thursday.” We shall see. On the official NFL injury report, Henry got a rest day Thursday.

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry was limited in Wednesday practice. The Titans face the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday and Henry is their best hope of coming close to a victory. The star RB is dealing with a foot injury.

Fantasy football implications for Week 9

If Henry sits out of the game against the Chiefs, it’s great news for Chiefs D/ST owners, but won’t affect much else. Henry has amassed 755 rushing yards so far this season, and the next-highest back on that stats list is Dontrell Hilliard with 109 yards. Henry is also third in receiving yards for the Titans this season.

He played a full game last week in Tennessee’s win against the Houston Texans, so there aren’t any outstanding concerns for his ability to play this weekend. A broken foot derailed his 2021 season, so the Titans might just be trying to play it safe here.
